Straight from New Orleans comes a nice collection of jazzy production from beatsmith Cam Smith. Dry Cereal seem to be explorations between breakbeats and jazz-influenced explorations of vibes, keys and synths. The interspersed vocal samples and radio interview footage provide just enough breathing room for this instrumental album to take you on a wonderful sonic journey. Dig it and dig it good.
New Orleans-based wordsmith Jonathan Brown has always had a touch for the brutally honest. His punk-rock influenced hip-hop touches all the proper emotional influential buttons, rather than the purely aesthetic ones. On his latest project, The Risk It All EP, we find him as candid as ever about topics such as educational policy, government paranoia and life choices, among other things, all wonderfully encapsulated into slightly more than 10 minutes. Dig it and dig it good.
